Biden’s Title IX policy expanding protections to LGBTQ+ people put on hold in 6 additional states

West Virginia (CNN)- A federal judge has blocked the Biden administration’s effort to expand the scope of Title IX, which prohibits sex-based discrimination in schools. 

The administration proposed extending those protections for LGBTQ+ students. 

The new rules were set to take effect on August 1. 

However, six states—Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia—filed lawsuits challenging the provision. 

A federal judge sided with the states, saying that the new protections cannot proceed while the lawsuit plays out.
